After 20 long months, we’re finally beginning to get a glimpse of what life might look like post-COVID. While there are still a lot of unknowns, one thing is for sure—some rituals and habits from the “before times” are forever changed.
For many of us, that includes our workout routine. Sure, gyms are open again, but there’s also been an unprecedented uptick in at-home workouts. Some folks are renovating their homes to accommodate a full gym while new abodes are coming with a dedicated fitness space from the jump, and virtual fitness communities like Peleton and Mirror are exploding. According to the Wall Street Journal, health and fitness equipment revenue more than doubled in 2020. Sales of treadmills soared 135 percent while those of stationary bikes nearly tripled—trends that are still going strong in 2021. It’s safe to say that the pandemic-induced great home gym renaissance is here to stay.
Now let’s get into the reason we’re all here. Black Friday is hands-down the best time of year to purchase fitness equipment. And lucky for you, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are not just one-day shopping events this year. In lieu of traditional 24-hour flash deals, fitness brands are extending their biggest sales of the year to months-long shopping events that last the full holiday season.
So whether you’ve procrastinated outfitting your home gym or have a loved one creating their own space, now is the moment to save hundreds (if not thousands) on equipment and gear. There are endless deals on all the essential pieces of equipment like treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes, rowing machines, and dumbbells. And yes, that includes cult-favorite brands like Peloton, Mirror, Hydrow, and SoulCycle, and old faithfuls like NordicTrack and Bowflex.
The savings don’t stop there, either. Everyone knows that the right apparel and gear are just as important to a solid workout as the heavy-hitting large equipment. Not to mention, much more budget-friendly and giftable (your wallet will thank you). This year, there are so many innovative technologies worth gifting—and smartwatches are just the start. Some of our favorite ideas are this smart scale from FitTrack that can instantly calculate body composition measurements and massagers and compression systems from Therabody that are revolutionizing post-workout recovery.
